Although I usually drink my bourbon neat (caveat: I do like a good Manhattan), I'm always open to trying new ways to enjoy our favorite beverage. I've never done much experimentation with adding water, but I know that many people suggest that water can help to bring out flavors in bourbon that might be covered by the alcohol bite. With that in mind, I thought I'd give the old Bourbon and Branch thing a try. The "official" recipe I found calls for 2 oz. bourbon mixed with 4 oz. spring water served over ice. Gave that a shot, and I have to say it was pretty watery. Didn't do anything good for the flavor, at least to my palate. So, who out there likes the Bourbon and Branch thing? Less water, no ice, or another variation? Just curious how others like to enjoy when adding water.
